Reservoir rocks are the store houses for oil and natural gas, and determining their extent and properties is the first step in the evaluation of a hydrocarbon discovery. But to turn the discovery of a natural resource into a wealth creating business requires not only knowledge of rocks but also an understanding of the dynamic behaviour of a uniquely complex rock and fluid system.

Using the principals of geology, physics and economics, together with practical mindedness and good judgement, reservoir engineers integrate diverse sources of information to create optimal development strategies for the development of oil and gas fields across the globe. This is a story of linking science to business to deliver the energy we all rely on.

Martin will be joined by his colleague, Andy Malone, who works as a development geologist. Andy and Martin have very generously agreed to host dinner or a drink after the talk for people who are interested in BP. Anybody who is interested must e-mail me (sks38@cam.ac.uk) in advance so that we have an idea of numbers. As usual, refreshments will be provided, everybody welcome.
